MATTIA DE SCIGLIO, Jherson Vergara, Riccardo Montolivo, Mario Balotelli and Stephan El Shaarawy have returned.

Milan continue their preparation ahead of the Champions League qualifiers and the Serie A and today they have welcomed five players that were playing with their national teams during the break and were therefore given an extended vacation.

Five players took part in the Confederation Cup with Italy, in which the Azzurri got knocked out in the semi-final, losing to Spain on penalties and another player was part of the Colombia U20 squad that played in the Under 20 World Cup.

Ignazio Abate, who dislocated his shoulder during the Confederation Cup, returned to Milanello already last week but today Massimiliano Allegri welcomes back Mario Balotelli (who also got injured in Brazil), Stephan El Shaarawy, Riccardo Montolivo and Mattia De Sciglio, as well as the new signing Jherson Vergara who’ll train with Milan for the first time today.

Meanwhile, Riccardo Saponara is unlikely to be fit for the Valencia game in three days while Luca Antonini has confirmed through his twitter account that the injury he picked up yesterday against Juventus is not serious and he’s training regularly.
